Progress stash reduction.

I crocheted another C2C blanket. see picture#1. I used the colours on top and mixed them two a number of different shades - 3 threads each - 2 col A plus 1 col B in varying combinations, 1A+1B+1C or 3 whites. And a few rows with the yarn I dyed to give it a bit of a kick.

Picture #2 shows what I've made so far with these colours: 2 blankets, 4 sweaters (the blue is the latest - picture #3) and 7 hats.

But there is a lot left ... see pict4 ... and that's not all. I have, however, 3 empty cones :)

Thank you. I use 3. The navy coloured are a bit thicker, so I'll try 2. Have to do a swatch asap.

Every item looks so nice. I especially love the little blue closely knitted sweater in the 3rd photo. You are exceptionally good with the knitting needles.

Actually it was the easiest as I only used two strands and had no 'half' stitches due to splitting the combined yarn.

2 are cardboard, the other one plastic with holes all over - too small for strawberries...
Now you got me thinking - oasis in it and stick flowers through the holes? Or popcicles. Hubby has his birthday today - I could use something less sweet on skewers

Wow! Lovely work!

Thank you. I am improvising to my heart's content and so far it all worked out rather nicely.
I think I'll switch to the marine colours for a while. What was the saying, a change is as good as a holiday? Something like that.
And I must try the knitting machine again, maybe some lace pattern. (I should really start with a plain piece of stocking stitch, but I always skipped the simple things and went in at the deep end...)
